Pack of cards made in China in c.2010 advertising the Chinese brew “Lucky Beer, the enlightened beer” which aims to elevate your mood. The company website explains: the “Laughing Buddha” depicted on Lucky Buddha beer is actually not THE Buddha and therefore not religious but cultural. The Laughing Buddha is a representation of wealth, happiness and life fulfilment whilst the beer itself is “an Asian style lager that is truly an enlightened brew...” See: www.luckydrinkco.com►
All the cards are illustrated with cultural symbols and lucky charms, including the “Laughing Buddha” whose likeness features on the bottle. The same design is replicated across each suit, with just the indices varying. Share the good fortune!
